The Big 400

Try the canoe trip to Hell this summer! This is an easy paddle, from the Glenbrook Yurt parking area, east to Hell along the Portage River. When you get to Hell, grab lunch, a cooling ice cream, or test your skills in miniature golf. You can also put in at Hi Land Lake boat launch. If you want to rent a canoe or kayak, start your trip in Hell and reverse the trip.
